Canon 7D Mark II mirrorless successor, the Canon EOS R7, rumoured to be saying in late 2022

Effectively, it’s been a minute or two since we final heard about Canon lastly making a follow-up to their standard Canon EOS 7D Mark II, the APS-C sports activities and wildlife shooter announced in 2014 and reportedly discontinued in 2019. There have been stories on the finish of 2020 that an “EOS R7” was spotted out in the wild, with many anticipating an imminent announcement. It by no means got here.

APS-C RF mount rumours began to hot back up again last September, although, however since then it’s mainly been radio silence – apart from a obscure point out of an APS-C RF mount camera coming this year. Now, although, Canon Rumors is reporting that the Canon EOS R7 (they are saying they’ve confirmed that that is what it’ll be referred to as) goes to be introduced later throughout 2022, with This fall being the more than likely timeframe.

There aren’t any specs as of but on something. Even the sensor measurement. However given the hype over a hypothetical EOS R7 over the past couple of years and Canon’s present mirrorless lineup having fairly stable full-frame illustration with the EOS R3, EOS R5 and EOS R6 (and an EOS R1 probably coming at some point), it appears logical that if Canon goes to develop the RF mount to cowl APS-C and kill off EOS M then the EOS R7 could be the way in which to do it.

And Canon Rumors says they’ve confirmed that the digicam is certainly going to be named the EOS R7, so if it’s not a 7D Mark II substitute, I believe lots of people are going to be disillusioned. The one query now could be, given the character of what Canon’s 7D DSLR line supplied, which options would possibly it inherit from the EOS R3? I’m pondering largely of Eye Management AF. Will Canon actually go all out with this one for many who want the “further attain” of APS-C in a fast-paced setting?

Solely time will inform, however that is most likely the Canon mirrorless digicam I’ve been most excited to listen to an announcement for (and I’m saying that as a Nikon shooter for the previous twenty years). And if it provides a minimum of a 25-megapixel sensor, 4K 120fps video and a minimum of a dozen frames per second, I would lastly be tempted to make the change. I imply, given Nikon’s historical past with their pro-level APS-C our bodies (D400 anyone?) it could be some time earlier than we see a good mirrorless D500 substitute.

We’ll preserve you posted as we hear extra.
